This memorandum transmits guidance regarding the CFC local and federation applications for Year 2000.
The local CFC applications and instructions can be downloaded from our website. LFCC's are strongly encouraged to use the model application forms provided by OPM. It is also suggested that you observe the recommended deadline dates for receipt of applications and appeals. The recommended closing date for receipt of local applications is April 14, 2000. A copy of the Year 2000 calendar of events is attached for your convenience. If you have difficulty in retrieving the application from our web page, please contact Deborah Moody at 202-606-2564 for a hard copy.
There is one change to the local application form this year. OPM will allow all charitable organizations to be listed in the CFC brochure by their official DBA instead of their legal name, as registered with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) if they choose. All organizations must include their IRS Employee Identification Number (EIN) regardless of whether or not they are operating under a DBA. The legal name listing and EIN will not count as part of the 25-word statement.
I hope you are planning to attend one of the upcoming OPM regional workshops. The dates and locations are March 19-21, 2000, San Diego, CA; April 2-4, 2000, Chicago, IL; and April 9-11, 2000, Tampa, FL. The cost of attendance should be included as a campaign expense for the 2000 campaign. If you need further information about the workshops, contact Frances Melson at 703-836-7100.
I look forward to meeting you this Spring!
This memorandum was sent with a copy of the instructions for the 25-word listings in the 2000 CFC and a copy of the 2000 Calendar of Events.
